Ready for the Ride Once Again…!:-)


I have always liked cycles and cycling a lot… If you ask me to choose between a motor-cycle and a bicycle, my choice will always be a bicycle… But because of the very poor condition of my previous bicycle, I left the habit and joy of cycling and It has been almost an year since I went on cycling…

Lately, I started to miss all that fun and decided to buy a new cycle and once again experience the joy of the whole thing…

So yesterday (1-9-2012), I have gone to the biggest bicycle showroom in our city and trust me, I is a feast for the eyes of any bicycle lover to see such a wide range of beautiful cycles all at one place… Among all those, I have selected 3 models and have struggled a lot to choose one from… Finally, took this one…

As soon as the billing was done, I started at the showroom and came home by cycling… 🙂 Now, I feel really happy about my choice… 🙂

My dad then told me that he would give me company for cycling and so, we gave our old cycle for repair… The mechanic assured us that it can be brought back to its original condition with replacement of a few parts… 🙂

Some interesting facts about cycling and why even you should join me for the ride…

It is one of the best ways to maintain the least possible gap between the energy Production and Energy Consumption in the Body… The Energy Equivalence for Health

Cycling increases muscle tone with little risk of over exercise or strain. Cycling builds strength in a holistic manner since every single part of the body is involved in cycling.

Cycling builds stamina… It is very effective in doing so, because people enjoy cycling and they wouldn’t really notice that they have gone farther than the last time they went cycling.

Cycling improves cardio-vascular fitness in a steady manner. Studies have shown that cycling to work will increase cardiovascular fitness by 3-7%. Cycling uses the largest muscle groups the legs, raising heart rate to benefit stamina and fitness. Regular cycling reduces the Resting Heart Rate, which inturn means a healthier heart…

Cycling eats up calories and is a good way to lose those unwanted pounds. Cycling will also boost your metabolic rate long after you’ve finished your ride.

Sleep more deeply & live more happily… In sedentary insomniacs, cycling for 20-30 minutes every other day reduced the time to fall asleep by half, and sleep time increased by almost an hour. It helps get your circadian rhythm back in sync and also helps in reducing the Stress hormone levels.

Cycling improves coordination and mental abilities… Cycling is an activity that involves the whole body. So, arm-to-leg, feet-to-hands and body-to-eye coordination are improved. It also helps build new brain cells in the hippocampus – the region responsible for memory, which deteriorates from the age of 30.

Cycling helps to Beat illness… Any form of moderate exercise makes immune cells more active, so they’re ready to fight off infection. In fact, research says that people who cycle for 30 minutes, five days a week take about half as many sick days as those who don’t.

It keeps you away from Cancer… Any exercise and cycling especially is good for keeping your cells in working order and is useful in warding off cancer.

You can save the planet… It takes around five percent of the materials and energy used to make a car to build a bike, and a bike produces zero pollution. Bikes are efficient, too – you travel around three times as fast as walking for the same amount of energy.

You can get fit without trying too hard… Regular cyclists enjoy a fitness level equal to that of a person who’s 10 years younger.

And finally, Cycling is one of the easiest ways to exercise… You can ride a bicycle almost anywhere, at any time of the year and once you have learned, you don’t forget. All you need is a bike, a half an hour of your time per day…

After all this, Don’t you think even you should join me for the ride…?

If you do, You are most welcome…

🙂 🙂 🙂
